Event description

Description

This experience day at the University of Sheffield gives A Level chemists a taste of what it’s like to study chemistry at University.

In the morning you'll be working in the chemistry lab, undertaking practical work to synthesise Aspirin. You'll prepare your own Aspirin sample using a number of key chemistry techniques including separation with vacuum filtration and recrystallisation to purify your product. You'll be working with one of our PhD students and using equipment and facilities not usually available in schools and colleges. After lunch you'll meet some of our undergraduate science students for a tour of the campus, followed by a talk and Q&A session so you can find out more about being a science student at the University of Sheffield. A member of our Department of Chemistry admissions team will be on hand to answer any queries you might have about studying chemistry at university.

For more details please refer to the dedicated event web page, and for any questions please feel free to contact the team for more details - schoolsliaison@sheffield.ac.uk
